The absence was profound,
tapping on the consciousness
and reminding it that something had fled.
The mind craved to fill the emptiness
reaching to unnatural sustenance
to complete itself.
The body grew in different ways
stretching to birth a new gap.
The absence brought a hunger
and unwound by insanity.
Time clicked on,
marked by the waves
As she grew
the numbers did too.
But the absence only flourished,
fed by the impenetrable sadness.
